COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Batch 19 is derived from a recipe found in an old logbook discovered in brewery archives dating back before 1919, when Prohibition banned beer throughout the country. Prohibition was enforced in Colorado in 1916. The pre-Prohibition style lager delivers a bold, hoppy flavor that is surprisingly well balanced. Test market in Chicago, Milwaukee, San Francisco, San Jose, and Washington DC.

Great beer. Hoppy aroma and flavor, but surprisingly well-balanced. Deep golden color.

I love this beer! Very balanced, very clean, wonderful taste! I can’t say enough positive remarks about this beer. Does not leave a lingering kind of Samuel Adams aftertaste. Don’t take that wrong, they make some good beers too, but this batch 19, to me, is that after work kind of beer. Great stuff!!!

This beer is very reminiscent of Stroh’s Signature beer. Love the aftertaste.

On tap at Graveyard Tavern in Atlanta. I’m surprised this is a Coors beer. Round bodied, amber colored, just slightly sweet. Tea notes.

I decided to try this one out. Cool looking label and I wanted to try the pre-prohibition recipe. Wonderful, imho. Has the full flavor of Sam Adams Boston Lager, yet the finish is a tad bit cleaner. A good session brew. I ended up purchasing another six-pack the following week. Very satisfying and the abv is just right. Thank you, Coors!

I am not going to try and sound cool by rating the appearence or look. This is a damn good beer. It is not very strong in flavor compared to some other BS beers that people love. This is a good beer to drink any time. It is a lighter beer that is easy on the stomach. I love it but good luck trying to find it.

The Bradley Center (Admiral’s and Bucks games) serves Batch 19 in a 16oz cup that holds it’s Kräusen ( frothy head ) to nearly the bottom of the cup. This is a classic arena beer, great aroma, rich hop flavor, and can be slammed, or savored until intermission. It’s worth visiting the beer garden on the south concourse as Batch 19 is only available there. Any other beer offering at the Bradley center will only disappoint.

Tap. I think the low marks for this beer come from raters who dont want to like a Coors brew. Pretend this was made by Dogfish Head or Stone amd re-rate. I’ll bet the score goes up. I dont like Coors but heres my objective rating: Light golden pour with a smooth white head that kind of looks like a nitro pour. Lacing? It COATS the glass! Spicy nose like a fruitcake. Taste is cardamom and allspice, well weaved with hops. Kind of sweet like a circus peanut candy but very good. Medium palate.

Coors Batch 19 has a medium, foamy, off-white head, some thin lacing left on the glass, and a clear, bubbly, amber appearance. The aroma is of citrusy hops, sweet brown bread, and mildly-roasted malt. Taste is of sugar, sweet brown bread, roasted barley malt, and a pleasant, pronounced hop bitterness throughout the middle-to-end of the sip. The mouthfeel is light and watery, and Coors Batch 19 finishes dry, refreshing, and pleasant. Overall, this is a fantastic, delicious, and eminently drinkable beer. I rate it most excellent. RJT

This is not bad. Definitely better than today’s Coors. Really proves that the years between the 21st amendment and the dawn of the craft beer revolution were the Dark Ages of American beer.
